Jacksonville, Florida, patients find relief at Laser Spine Institute in Tampa, Florida

Dorothea's Laser Spine Institute Testimonial

Dorothea Simon, from Jacksonville, Florida., traveled to Laser Spine Institute’s state-of-the-art outpatient surgery center to find relief from her lower back pain. “I really enjoyed being here; staff takes care of you and your Care Partner,” she said. “I would recommend Laser Spine Institute to everyone with neck or back pain. The experience here has been terrific.”

Living with constant neck and back pain is no way to go through life. Yet, time and time again people make the decision to try and manage their pain with conservative treatments rather than undergo an intimidating and invasive traditional open spine surgery – with good reason. However, there’s another option offered at Laser Spine Institute in Tampa, Florida. Minimally invasive spine surgery is an outpatient treatment that addresses many of the most common sources of chronic neck and back pain without the drawbacks of major surgery.

Do I need back surgery?

In years past, if you experienced debilitating neck or back pain, your only hope for relief typically rested with traditional open spine surgery. During this invasive spine surgery, the back surgeon accessed the spine through a large incision, removed the intervertebral disc and bone tissue and attempted to stabilize the spine with a bone graft, rods and screws. If the procedure went according to plan, the adjacent vertebrae eventually fused together, limiting painful articulation and stabilizing the spine. The problem with this surgery is that it is a major operation requiring hospitalization, several days of intensive recovery and months of rehabilitation to fully overcome the procedure.

At Laser Spine Institute, our spine surgeons treat many of the same causes of neck and back pain but with an entirely different technique. Rather than dissect the muscles with a large incision, our instruments can be gently inserted into the patient through a small incision. Using state-of-the-art technology, the spine surgeon is able to pinpoint the source of discomfort and treat it – while also maintaining the integrity of the spinal anatomy.

As a result, patients typically require only limited rest and rehabilitation to get back to an active lifestyle.
